“Young women work together to present at UN forum”, Global Sisters Report, Sep 2, 2021, describes carrying forward the work of Women’s Global Connection and the Girls Global Summit.
What we do
In the ordinary meetings, starting in April, we concentrated on the task of reading, reflecting and making comments on the book written by M. Castillo and Juan A. Estrada, Jesus’ Project [El Proyecto de Jesús]. We also read Luke’s Gospel and the text written by Elizabeth A. Johnson, Consider Jesus: Waves or Renewal in Christology. This allowed us to review and to update ourselves in the area of Christology.
Emmaus Community and local Sisters in San Antonio, join in an afternoon of celebration to bid a fond farewell to Pre-Nov- ice Carmen Ramirez as she heads to St. Louis Novitiate. It was an afternoon of hospitality, friendship and joyful sharing of many parting gifts for Carmen. We wish her Bon Voyage!
Sisters at the IW Village engage in meaningful conversations together with all the Sisters of the Congregation, in examining more closely how all can relate generation by generation. The Sisters engaged in the process are hoping to offer insights to the other generational groups about the transition thresholds they encounter and the needs related to them in their lives.

We are looking forward to our work with Margaret.
As we join in the celebration of ‘Laudato Si Week,’ and after the long indoor lockdown, we find that there is so much to celebrate in the outdoors, now that ‘Spring has sprung’ and we are led to take a look at our own ‘Care of Creation’ attitudes and activities.
The Associate communities have been doing their best to accompany one another this whole year. Both Mexico and U.S. Associates had their assemblies online. We are encouraged by the way our Associates have learned how to use technology for these processes. The Mexico Associate Assembly was celebrated over several weeks, culminating with the transition to a new team. The U.S. Associates also used technology to transition to a new coordinating committee.
